    That's a great shot. Almost like the famous Horn/Zerafa I pic turned upside down. :lol:

    Some interesting comments in that interview. Big wraps for Isaac Hardman as a sparring partner. He & Joel Camilleri did 40 rounds each with Junior Tszyu in the lead-up to the fight. I think the fact that Jamie Weetch hadn't fought since 2018 played a big role in the one round demolition job but he gets high praise from Team Tool Train. Both guys won well on the night. They also did another training camp in America in January to begin the year. They did two of those last year (three if you count the Manny Pacquiao preparation). They are looking for international opponents with a name next up & may go again in Townsville where they can get a crowd (there were more than 15,000 for the Horndog fight). That might rule out Michael Zerafa as a potential opponent but presumably leaves Dennis Hogan in. From the sounds of things though, they're looking for the biggest name they can get @ Junior Middle who's willing to come out here so they can sell it as a major event.

    * Matchroom won the Ferocious purse bid . Hearn wanted to reduce purse from 150 k to
    100 k. But won the purse bid buy increasing offer for GK to 166 k. On this evidence GK
    will have to win in shutout to win dec !!
    * Maloney twins most likely to head to States to prepare for their Title bouts by the
    end of the mth.
    * Brock Jarvis vs Aust 118 lb Champ Mark Schleibs in the works. MS is 12 - 0
    8 ko and better than the Asian Taxi drivers Fenech has had him feasting on.
    * Joe Camilleri has a dig at his former trainer Rushton
    " Get a trainer like me who cares for me like i'm family , who hurts when i hurt ,
    pushed me to do better and gets satisfaction from seeing me secured when i
    win he wins , we are a team and we're in this together. Dundee Kim will always
    have my back and will do anything possible to see my suceed and leave the ring
    safely and in good health.
    Thank you Dundee i appeciate you alot.
    Your boxer Camako . "

    Horndog's path back to the top begins with two grudge matches:

    1. Jack Brubaker - Trained by Jeff Fenech & inked by @MidniteProwler.
    2. Joel Camilleri - Trained by Dundee Kim.

    If (emphasis on 'if') he wins those two, then move onto:

    3. Bowyn Morgan - A Kiwi who needs another whoopin' by an Australian.
    4. Michael Zerafa - Surely a rubber match is in order after what happened in the first two? Surely??

    If (that word again) he makes it four in a row, he goes:

    5. World title eliminator or World title shot @ Junior Middle. Whatever he can get, really.
    6. Retirement, title shot or get ready to defend the belt.

    That's how to finish off what should be a ten-year professional boxing career.

    As matters presently stand, he's a couple of years short.

    I didn't think of the Camilleri fight that's a good shout at this juncture I wouldn't be surprised if he beat Horn as Camo is tough with a good chin, its a 50/50 fight and they could sell it with the Rushton Kim rivalry.

    * Tim Tszyu now WBO no 2 at 154 lbs.
    * Horn vs Tszyu was a raging success but it has become a nightmare for the Stadium
    main tenants the Cowboy's who have spent 50 k repairing the turf.
    * Hannah Lawyers who once backed the Hornet are now one of Tszyu main sponsor ' s.
    * Matt Rose ambitous plans for Aust Boxing " It should be spoken like the NRL and AFL.
    Aust is a nation that loves its fights ". Would like nothing more than this to become
    reality. Matt lastest signing UFC fighter Tai Tuivasa.
    * Ben Kite W UD Tysinn Best and new Aust 147 lb Champ.
    * Waylon Law W UD Justin Frost new Aust 140 lb Champ.

    I wonder who's next for Timmy Tool Train? Now that he's at #2 in the WBO rankings, he won't be that far off a world title shot. I hope Dennis Hogan gets the gig. He's well known in Queensland & his promotional outfit gave Junior a fight when he was on the way up when there was nothing in it for them. What goes around doesn't always come around in this sport but when it can it should.

    I think WBO Champ Patrick Teixeira is locked into a fight with #1 ranked Brian Castano. The good news is that Castano has shown he's a fighter who's willing to travel. So the chances of a world title shot landing here next year must be decent. Timmy going after the WBO belt makes sense also. It's something that would distinguish his career from that of his father who never fought for that title.

    One thing I really like about Matt Rose's promotions is they tend to announce Junior's opponents a long way out from the fight. That gives everyone plenty of notice who he's fighting and a chance for interest levels & expectations to build in the lead up to the fight. And for the opponent to establish a bit of a profile with the local audience. It's just a small thing but it's something I like.

    * With a world title shot so close it seems Matt Rose is taking the safe option for Tszyu
    with talk surfacing Rose is trying to line up a fight with Daniel Geale who is now 39 and
    hasn't fought in three yrs . Rose has also shown a reluctant to accept a challenge from
    Daniel Lewis who says he will fight Tszyu for nothing. I hope this is just talk and fight
    with Geale like Mundine vs Zerafa would be a serious blow to the credibilty of Aust
    Boxing.
    * Jim Kambosos " Ferocious Promotions was bidding to bring the eliminator to Aust.
    FP was taking the risk to host the event in Aust and went into the bid process with its
    own 260 K USD. ''
    * Arsene Fosso fight Canberra postponed to March next yr. This is down to be shown
    on Fox and most likely opponent Aust HW Champ Faiga Opelu ( who was to fight
    Fosso NBS Canberra ) . Opelu defend 's his Aust HW Title vs Solomon Haumuno Oct 2.
    * Joe Camilleri in talks to fight Wade Ryan.

    The story that Matt Rose is chasing a fight with Daniel Geale for Junior Tszyu is a work of fiction reported in the The Sunday Telegraph yesterday.

    It was fed to the journo in question by the Daniel Lewis camp to get some cheap publicity. Lewis won't get a fight with Junior Tszyu b/c he doesn't have a world ranking & lost his last outing. He also doesn't have any money behind him which appears to mean that he can't get fights with anybody decent domestically the way Junior Tszyu has been able to.

    I've said before that the strategy for developing Daniel needs to be more sophisticated than simply calling for fights with Junior Tszyu. Let's hope that it is & that we see him back in action soon.

    I'd like to see an all-out Australian assault on the Junior Middleweight division. Junior Tszyu goes up the middle & takes the WBO belt. Horndog gets brought back & goes after the WBA. Daniel gets some decent wins domestically & goes after one of the others.

    Joel Camilleri v Wade Ryan is a good fight. Let's hope we get that one & that it's televised.

    I am almost positive that we will get Jeff Horn v Daniel Geale next.
